AAA challenge

Time again to play in the AAA challenge and this time it is : make a shaker card. I wanted to make a special card anyhow for my sister's BIG birthday. I love the inspiration picture and a card was born!


I took the Papertrey numbers and die cut my card stock. Attached acetate behind and foam tape around the numbers. I first had some thicker foam tape, but all the sequins basically disappeared in a small clump when holding the card upright....so I disassembled it and took thinner foam tape - looks like a lot more sequins all of a sudden... 


I heat embossed the sentiment in silver (Neat&Tangled - Across the card), to match the inspiration photo and added silver string with a brad and beads. Since all the beads were just lumping up when the card was upright and didn't look like anything I attached tiny drops of glossy accents to make them stay where they are....


I am also playing with this card at Less is More - Anything Goes
and I am  linking this card with the Snippets Playground - use a snippet (the pink background behind the numbers is one)

Hey, we're neighbors at AAA! Love how you used the silver and don't ya just love beads added to a card. Especially when it doesn't have to go through the mail.
